Re: Assisted Flight


Here's my contribution: Wings on the back of a shirt. (Can you do back of the shirt in a derby? I didn't find anything saying no.)

There are four pieces of text on the shirt. They are written backwards in a da Vinci style script.

The bottom one says: "the width of the outspread wings would be equal to five times the height of the human"

The next one up, cradled under one wing, says "so you can read backwards, good for you"

The one on the wing says "the rope must be so / designed to withstand the forces / fare l'impossibile"

And the top one says "si hoc legere potes, eruditus es"

Hope you enjoy it!

I'm confused on why the text is backwards? Other then that, cool looking shirt.

Do some research on Da Vinci.

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

Thanks! Basically, that's how da Vinci wrote in his notes...backwards. So I'm rolling with the theme.
